BC69 - Color Challenge - REALLY


Hello and welcome to another Friday (doin' the happy dance) and another edition of the Blogger's Challenge. Our challenge this week was a color challenge, and I have to say that this was a real challenge for me because I just not lovin' this color combination very much. Perhaps it was because I really felt CHALLENGED to find a layout design the I liked with this combination. I finally came across a layout design by Tami Mayberry (sketch queen supreme). The more I struggled with these colors, the more determined I became to create SOMETHING...so here you have my "something". I don't especially love it, but I don't absolutely hate it either...those things I hate, you'll never see, as they line the bottom of my trash can. *grin*

I'm sure that the other chickies in the Blogger's Challenge group will WOW you, as they always amaze me each week. To see a list along with links to their blogs, check out the Blogger's Challenge logo along the left-hand side bar of my blog.

As always, I truly appreciate your visits to my blog. Until next time, smile and have a wonderful day!
